Berlingo-less new member!

Big Grin 
I'm on the lookout for a Berlingo and have joined in advance! I'm going to modify the back so I can occasionally sleep in it. I've been developing my plans for a while and it was through googling how to remove the rear seats that I found this great forum and noticed that many have already done something similar! I need to design it so I can also put an e-bike in as well (which I also haven't got yet! - things happen slowly in my life!).
I'm looking for a '66 plate 1.6 diesel with the Modutop, possibly an automatic. I hope you lovely people can advise me along the way Smile

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

There are lots of posts about camping conversions here have a search for boot jump

Have you considered a non modutop version ? these have more space inside ( older ones do certainly )

Happy hunting,

Geoff

Hi Geoff, thanks for the warm welcome!
Wasn't aware there was less space, so many thanks,
I'm hoping to chill out in remote areas and do a bit of stargazing, plus it would allow some light in when the side windows are blacked out,
but yeah I may have to consider other models, especially as the modutop seems to be pretty rare on the B9 models.

Welcome, regarding getting your e-bike in, I think you'll find it easier (regarding fit of the handlebars) with a non-ModuTop version. Regardless of ModuTop, if you plan to keep both wheels on the bike then one wheel needs to slide partially beside the driver or passenger seat, or between the front seats, with the centre storage bin (if fitted) temporarily removed. There are some earlier threads on the subject in this forum. The B9 is a great bike carrying vehicle. I smiled at your "chilling out in the back" because I know from experience that it can quickly get quite chilly, as standard they aren't well insulated.

Thanks Matt.

I think I may need some hot water bottles!

I will search the earlier threads for info regarding bikes, but i'm curious to understand the differences in the ModuTop version, I just thought it meant it had a rather large sunroof[Image: undecided.png]

The version without the Modutop has more headroom
